I think that Sky should become more like Fox news. Fox news is by far the best american news channel even if its reporting may be slightly unfair, it doesnt bother me as i am a bush supporter, for the simple fact his policys make more exciting news.

Fox is better than Sky for several reasons. The first being that its presenters are more 'real' than the ones on Sky. People can simply relate more to the presenters and there presenting style on Fox than they can on Sky because they are not as rigged. Presenters such as Shepard Smith really make the channel great. He is the best natural broadcaster ive ever seen.If you can try and watch his shows 'THE FOX REPORT'(12.OOAM UK) and 'STUDIO B' (8.00PM UK)

Also they have special shows that break the news up so its not as boring. Shows like 'FOX & FRIENDS' in the morning that offer an informal look at the news followed at 9 by 'FOX NEWS LIVE' the main news cast for the day. They also offer unique shows such as 'DAYSIDE' that manage to combine a chat show with a live studio audience and the days hard news.

Also on Fox they hardly ever use pre-recorded packages. They always have a live reporter at the scene updating you with the news every hour. Granted they may be reading from a script but atleast you know the news you are getting is fresh unlike pakages that may be used for 10hours without being updated.

Also i belive that fox have better graphics. There 'fox news alert' graphic is simply amazing. It commands attention and gets you to look up at the screen, this way you dont miss any of the breaking details. I belive sky should have one of these as when doing other things with the news on in the background its easy to miss a breaking news story.

So this is why Fox is better than Sky. I belive its never too late for Sky to change. Ofcouse i wouldnt want sky to be unfair like fox is, but simply steal the way it works and enjoy the same success Fox has (Fox has more viewers than CNN).

I read this last night. My apologies for taking so long in replying but i couden't stop laughing... You are joking Kaylover, you got to be. Then i had an awful nightmare that Sky become Fox in all but name.. Aaaaaargghhh!!!

I prefer my news to come from a credible news service which remains impartial. Sky is a credible service Fox on the other hand is not.

I understand why Mistah Murdoch Sah called Sky News "Sky" ("yeah, that's a good name for a sat channel, mate") but....Fox?

Was it inspired by the, er, female presenters?!

As for the rest, I'll just rely on John McEnroe's observations to the umpires at the Big W

However, at least Brits' dislike of all things Foxy does prove a point to Europeans that not all of Britain just mimics the US of A.

Outfoxed is excellent. The ending sucks but the rest of the movie is very, very interesting.

Fox News is not a news channel. It's damn near fiction all of it. And don't get me started on their pundits. WORST TELEVISION "PRESENTERS" EVER. Bill O'Reilly is a bonafide psychopath and Sean Hannity wants to kill all non-conservatives.

Which is truly, truly sad. I think it played a big part in getting the most idiotic and most dangerous "President" EVER re-elected. "Now there's only two days left until we re-elect President Bush". Uhm :huh: (I am NOT making this up! They said it all the time leading up to the election)

It's a sad, sad world.

I think people need to get over the fact that fox news it not fair, its part of the channel. I think Fox news is brave in standing up for the right wing. Its about time we had an openly right wing channel. Just look at all the left wing media outlets such as CNN, nobody moans about them being unfair.

I never said that i wanted Sky to be unfair like Fox but simply copy its format, that is undoubtably success. You have to admit that they way Fox is run (bar the unfair reporting) is far greater than Sky at this time.
